Divine sarcasm to those who reject the messenger and then the message, Bible doctrine.

Because of the influence of what GAL 2:4 calls false brethren who had sneaked in to spy out the liberty which we all have in Christ Jesus, in order to bring us into bondage.
ROM 3:24, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus;
Doctrine of inspiration,
God the H oly Spirit supernaturally directed the apostle Paul to write ROM 5:1 Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
In ROM 5:15, the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to the many or the hoi polloi which says the gift of salvation by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to all.
In ROM 5:20, the apostle really shocked the Judaizers when he said the Law came in that the transgression might increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,
They disagreed with Romans Chapter Five – to appreciate the blessings that accompany justification and to comprehend more fully the grace offered through Jesus Christ.
They strongly opposed Romans Chapter Six where the apostle Paul taught identification behind the baptism unto death and to appreciate the freedom from the sin nature’s control and the newness of life which we may now enjoy in Christ.
They totally despised Romans Chapter Seven and the Jewish Christian’s relationship to the Law of Moses and to comprehend the dilemma one faces without Jesus Christ.
Then Romans Chapter Eight was just to much to take when they heard there was no condemnation and that grace gave them the power to be more than conquerors through him that loved us.
GAL 4:29, But as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so it is now also.
In Rom 9, Paul began to say some things that were shocking to some of the legalistic self-righteous Jewish believers as well as to some of the Gentile believers in Rome who became deceived because they thought their system of behavior impressed God.
JER 49:16, “As for the terror of you, The arrogance of your heart has deceived you.”
1CO 3:18, Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become foolish that he may become wise.
In GAL 6:3, concerning those who consider themselves to be really something. For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
He also made a great statement in GAL 6:7 when he said Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.
GAL 6:6-7, And let the one who is taught the word share all good things with him who teaches. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.
Also, just before he died he said what will inevitably happen to deceivers in
2TI 3:13, But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
GAL 4:16, Have I therefore become your enemy by telling you the truth?
The Church of Rome was beginning to reject the messenger, Paul, and then Satan’s ultimate goal, the message, Bible doctrine.
